Apex? Is that you? But...where have you been? That's right folks, after almost 2 years without an update the once revered Apex Launcher is finally making a comeback. The one-time fan favorite was right up there in its heyday, battling it out with Nova to be crowned launcher-king. Then it all went quiet. The updated app promises mysterious new features when it relaunches in May, so we can probably expect some Nougat inspired goodness. The Apex devs announced their first update since June 2015 in a Medium post, confirming that new development and support teams will be at the helm. As well as the new blog, they also unveiled new Facebook & Twitter accounts and encouraged people to engage with them about the news.

It was also … [Read more...] about Apex Launcher set to return from the dead this May
Resurrected from the dead
Get the Mach newsletter. SUBSCRIBE Humans have always looked for tangible ways to remember departed loved ones. We save letters and emails they wrote us. We look fondly at photos of them. We watch and rewatch old videos just to see their faces and hear them talk. But the rise of digital technologies may soon give us even more compelling ways to remember lost friends and family. These include apps that let us text with digital representations of the dead — we’d type a message and then get some sort of comforting reply — and maybe even systems that let us speak with and possibly touch realistic avatars of the ones we miss most. Maybe that sounds creepy, but some experts believe we’ll find comfort in continuing our interactions with people whose biological existences have come to an end. “Many people visit the headstone of a loved one to help come to terms with their passing, and have a one-sided conversation where they think about the memory of … [Read more...] about Will ‘digital resurrections’ let us bring back the dead?

The Note 7 is the punchline to a joke that has been repeated so many times that it's only funny when compared to Amy Schumer's latest special. After two failed launches, Samsung chose to retire the phablet and try and repair whatever reputation it had with better products in the next generation. However, now, there is a “resurrected” Note 7 running amok — Sammy chose to refurbish a bunch of the yet-unburned units, rebrand them as Note Fan Edition, and sell them in the market where it has a steady fandom — South Korea.It seems that the Note FE will be the Note 7's swan song in this world — Samsung has officially announced that it will be green-lighting mission “recycle Note 7”. As a result of the operation, the manufacturer expects to recover 157 tons of rare metals, all of the OLED display panels, memory chips, and camera sensors, and use them for repairs or flat out recycle them.With the amount of smartphones that get manufactured and thrown … [Read more...] about The Lord of Light does not simply resurrect everyone: Samsung to recover tons of rare metals from the dead Note 7
